An Introduction to Alzheimers disease

Alzheimers disease (AD) it is the most prevalent form of dementia seen in the older people, progressing gradually. AD damages brain functions like memory. Current research is going on to find its main source of occurrence, analysis, prevention and its treatment.

Actually patients’ suffering with Alzheimer’s observes changes in their brain. In general brain cells which are also known as neurons they communicate through connections known as synapses, people suffering with AD in them these connections gets lost and ultimately leads to decrease in thinking occurs. Researchers found that people with AD have disrupted brain cell which are known as tangles, these tangles gets deposited in between the brain cells known as amyloid plaques, these are made up of a protein known as amyloid or also known as A-beta, thus leading to Alzheimer’s.

Memory loss is not a regular process in general seen mostly in older people due to their age. Depending on its symptoms it may be either static or progressive. Static dementia leads to head trauma, long-term neurosis. It does not lead to severity but remains stable. In progressive dementia is not appropriate in a particular situation over time. This type of dementia is found in several major brain disorders. Their main feature is the destruction in intelligent functions which disturbs their regular and social activities.

While most changes in the brain that cause dementia are permanent and worsen over time, thinking and memory problems caused by the following conditions may improve when the condition is treated or addressed:Depression, Medication side effects, Excess use of alcohol, Thyroid problems, Vitamin deficiencies.

There are many problems which may contribute to the development of memory related problems, whereas Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia causes majorly elders. Clinical trials, researchers find new ways to detect, treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and related to Alzheimer’s.
